# [Tutor] guess my number game

```Hi there,

Yes, the first code does a good job by asking them to go higher or lower
after each guess, in the pop up window.

The 2nd code works, but only outputs all the higher and lower outputs after
the 10 guesses.  Everyone in the class has the same result basically.  When
I searched on various sites, they also work this way.  I can allow them to
be finished at this point, but we just wanted the game to tell the user if
he should go lower or higher after every guess.

Does this make sense?

Thank you,
Kerri
